This is a special episode of the show, with some tips to help you and your vegan business survive the current COVID-19 coronavirus crisis.
I’m joined by three experts: Bob Ratnarajah, a strategic finance practitioner in Australia; Karen Knowler, a business and mindset coach in the UK; and Stephanie Redcross, a business coach and marketing consultant with Vegan Mainstream in the US.
Bob provides you with some practical strategies to preserve cash and adapt your business.
Karen gives you some great tips on how to manage yourself, including dealing with anxiety and fear.
And Stephanie and I talk about why you need to continue marketing and promoting your business, and how to do it ethically and with integrity.
We recorded this episode on 20 March, 2020 and obviously things can and will change, but the advice is relevant and of course it’s important that you keep up to date with announcements from the health authorities and governments so you can best protect your vegan business.
